Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Thomas Byrne (Meath East, Fianna Fail)
It would not be the first time that an announcement was made on social media that was not subsequently followed through. We have certainly heard that before.
The Minister for Education and Skills announced that the review of history and the junior certificate would be complete by the end of March. I know a new board was appointed to the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, NCCA. Can the Tánaiste confirm that history will be restored as a compulsory subject in the junior certificate as the Minister has indicated?
